1Put the almonds in the Thermomix cup and grind for 15 seconds at speed 9.
2Remove from Thermomix and set aside.
3Put the sugar in the Thermomix cup and grind to a powder for 10 seconds at speed 9.
4Add the butter and cream and set for 3 minutes at 210°F, level 1.
5Preheat oven to 360°F.
6Add the almonds, grapes, sliced cherries, sunflower seeds, ginger, and flour and mix for 30 seconds at level 3.
7Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
8Use a teaspoon to place small mounds of the mixture on the baking sheet. Leave 5 centimeters of space between each one so they can expand.
9Place half a cherry in the center of each mound.
10Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Turn the oven off and let the cookies cool in the oven.
11In the clean and dry Thermomix cup, place the broken chocolate --it is best to grind in small portions at a time-- and press the Turbo button 3 times, then grate for 5 seconds at speed 9.
12Use a spatula to scrape the sides of the bowl. Set the Thermomix to 4 minutes at 120°F C, speed 2.
13Remove the bowl from the Thermomix and allow it to cool down for about 10 minutes.
14Put the bowl back in the Thermomix again and set for 3 minutes at speed 4.
15Remove and sprinkle the chocolate on a sheet of parchment paper.
16Place the cookies on top of the chocolate and press slightly.
17Allow them to solidify for about a half an hour, and then cut the cookies with a round, metal cookie cutter.
